Public Transport based walk with Sarah Peppiatt.
A dramatic high level circuit of Kinder, beginning with the interesting route up Grindsbrook Clough and then proceeding anti-clockwise all the way round the top of Kinder, before returning down Grindsbrook Knoll to Edale. If the weather's good the views will be fantastic!

This is a long walk for the time of year, and if very wet can be quite hard going. Please be sure you're capable of the full walk as there are few bail out points.
